Sometime in the last year I saw an Oprah episode where she talked about loving this book lamp. It's a light that attaches right to the page of the book and there is no craning of the neck needed to read your book in bed. Did anyone see this, or does anyone know where I can find one? Thanks!

I've seen book lights at Walmart.  I was thinking about going to get one just this week!

If it's the show I remember, she was excited about the LightWedge. They've got small ones for sale here and they're on Amazon. It illuminates the whole page.

I used one type of book light. It was rather large and clipped to the book cover. It always seemed to interfere with page turning. So now I use a headlamp I got in the camping section of my store. It works great, and the LED lights make the battery life really long.

I also use my headlamp for other things like working on the car, cleaning under the bed, working in the attic, camping (boys need 2 hands when standing up at the pit toilets), etc.

I've been using The Itty Bitty Book Light for years. They have a junior size that weighs about three ounces. It's perfect for paperbacks, not heavy and doesn't interfere with turning pages. They also work on batteries and a transformer so you can use it where every you are.

I love my LightWedge. I just bought one for my future DIL the other day for her birthday too. The price that they have them in the kiosk for is not a bad price either.

Thanks! I copied the link into my husband's e-mail. I'm not above not-so-subtle hints! lol
